Going up & down, mostly when you have your indicator on or your horn even. Battery is a good starting point in my opinion.

On a parallel thread, my elite, now ~7K Kms old seems to have an issue with the AC. Not in terms of cooling, but i feel the fan sound has increased all of a sudden. Its a distinctive mild rattling sound. Any ideas or experiences with this? Before i hit the service station and am provided a lame reason, would like the viewpoint of our experts.

You could try removing and cleaning the AC Filter located behind the glovebox. A similar issue occured in my car where there was a consistent "Whine" coming from the AC vents at higher fan speeds. It almost sounded like a vaccum cleaner. Turns out the SVC guys didn't colse the filter latch properly. The leaking air caused that mind numbing whistle.

For a start, it would be a good idea to clean the filter and check if the sound persists. There might be some seeds or twigs stuck in the filter mesh and could start rattling when there is a flow of air in the vents.

If there is no cabin filter, it might be some leaves which may be got entangled in the blower. It gives a mild rattle like noise and increases the blower noise too.

Thanks AveekKumar

Regarding the fan sound issue in your car, this happens with me too when the AC is in auto mode and gradually decreases when it reaches the set temperature but no rattling sound heard. The only solution, i got used to it

Earlier i used to always hear rattling noise during running and i couldn't figure out this issue at all. Even the ASS guys did everything they could, but no luck. This continued for almost 5-6 months and finally the culprit was my sunglass kept in the glass holder next to rear view mirror and has caused the vibration when the glass touches the wall while driving

Please check if you have anything in the sunglass holder that causes these sort of vibration.

Thanks ssengo, swiftnfurious & hakunabatata for your inputs. My sunglass holder is empty, so nothing to do there. Will check with the AC filter for sure once i am back.

Has anyone tried adjusting the inside rear view mirror? Is it adjustable or one has to adjust the seat height to get the desired rear view in the iRVM?

I always feel apprehensive about getting it broken and have never applied force to adjust it.

You can easily adjust it with your hand.

The beep sound that comes from reverse parking sensor system has suddenly stopped working from yesterday. I can see the car image with sensing symbols in the mini screen of instrument cluster when reversing, but no beep sound.
Can someone please throw some light on what might have gone wrong?

Thanks

I give it at Trident near Jakkasandra or Near Domlur bridge. I feel the Jakkasandra one is bit better as there are lesser vehicles there

The simplest explanation would be that the wires connected to the buzzer have some sort of loose contact or have come off.

Alternatively, Do you park your car in areas with lot of rodents (Rats, Mongooses) around ? There's a slim chance that they might have taken a bite out of the wires, if that's the case.

The best thing to do would be to take it to the ASC.

I have a trip to Goa coming up this weekend. It will also me my first major road trip (I've done Pune - Mahabaleshwar before, but that took ~3 hours) with my beauty. Considering the second mandatory service is to be done at 10K kms, and my car is at ~7K at the moment, is it beneficial to take my car to the ASC for a general checkup before my drive. I have no complaints or issues with the car as yet.

If there's no problem with the car then just a basic DIY will help.

Pop up the hood
1. Check Engine Oil level
2. Coolant level
3. Brake Fluid
4. Inspect Air Filter Element and clean it
5. Wash the car's wheels/tyres to remove brake dust.
6. Check Tyre Pressure
